4 working-from-home skincare tips
As this year slowly comes to a close and government guidelines have advised us to continue to work from home if we are able to , our Skinora doctor share their top 4 work -from-home top tips to help your skin look refreshed and radiant before your online meetings.
1) Don’t forget to cleanse your skin when working-from-home
As obvious as this first tip may be, how many of us forget to do so after a long day of Zoom meetings and replying to enormous amounts of e-mails ? Skinora experts would like to remind you, however, that forgetting to do this will take a toll on your skin. Impurities and excess oils need to be extracted regularly and what better way than to do this before switching off?
Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel
This comfort-rich cleanser is formulated to dissolve makeup and impurities gently yet thoroughly. Blended with Polyhydroxy, nourishing botanicals and conditioners to prime skin for added comfort and care. Rinse or tissue off for skin that is refreshed and texture that is softer and smoother.
2) Protect your skin when working-from-home
Whether indoors or outdoors, sunscreen is VERY important . UVA rays fromt he sun can pass through glass windows. In addition blue light emitted from screens has been shown to cause skin damage in the long term. Our experts strongly advise that you don’t skip this step. Here are our favourite top two :
ZO Skin Health Sunscreen + Powder
Winner of this years beauty awards, ZO’s sunscreen is buildable, leaves skin feeling smooth and offers a great amount of protection against UVA, UVB and blue light damage. This gem contains the following key ingredients :
- Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide: Protects against UVA and UVB rays
- Fractionated melanin: Provides protection against blue light (HEV light) that is emitted from the sun and from electronic devices
- ZOX12® complex: Contains Vitamins A, C and E to help protect skin from free radical damage and IR-A rays
NeoStrata Defend Sheer Physical Protection SPF50
This mattifying beauty shields the skin from both aging UVA rays and burning UVB rays. It also contains 3 antioxidants for added protection against blue light (HEV rays). Put this on for a light no-make-up-make-up look and wow on your meetings !
3) Moisturise your skin and use serums when working-from-home
Your skin needs a top up of moisture everyday; hydrate your inside by drinking lots of water and hydrate your outside by applying products that plump up your skin and replenish your skin barrier. Opt for a hydrating serum in the morning for a glow-full look that reflects through that computer screen !
Here are the experts’ choices:
Medik8 Hydr8 B5 Intense
This super formula gives your skin the power to withstand dehydrating changes in temperature and humidity, leaving the complexion showered in moisture. Yummy !

4) Reduce blue light damage with THIS when working-from-home

This skincare gold standard, dermatologist favourite and beauty winner is has just had blue light protector added to its many benefits:
